red-legged purse web spider in Ind.
Hi,
I don’t have a question but just wanted to comment that we just found a red-legged purse web spider in Mitchell Ind. I had never seen one before either and was facinated with it. I wonder if it is still on the endangered list. I probably took 20 photos but none nearly as nice as that person from Alabama that you have posted. That’s all, Thanks for your great web site! It’s such a great thing!.
sincerely,

Hi Patty,
Photographic beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We think your photo is lovely, and even though blurry, clearly identifies this distinctive spider. To the best of our knowledge, it is still considered endangered, though there might be local areas with healthy populations.
